  31. Another stunner Debra......
    I have been an avid fan of your creativity for a LONG time....often CASEing them (ur Baked Brown Sugar/Cobbler/Garden Green one was a particular fave indeed. My only wish is that you had a "pin" option on ur cards......(sigh).
    I so v v much appreciate the fact that you provide dimension and sizes in ur descriptions. Makes life a lot easier for folks like me who want a wee more Artfelt in their day.
    Love this card as well. I am looking v much fwd to getting my hands on this set and having a go at this one too.
    Much love and appreciation
